Capability Gap

No adequate training provided to practitioners related to the current legislation concerning human trafficking (esp. migrant smuggling) and the protection of unac-companied minors.


Migrant smuggling and the inadequate protection of unaccompanied minors are issues that have been increasingly present through migration. Legal frameworks are in place in order to regulate illegal practices, however, due to the constant and fast-pace change of EU and national legislations, LEAs are neither fully aware of the scope of these issues nor of the existing legislation that prohibits such unlawful practices. Therefore, there is no current application of said regulations, thus leaving even more space for these practices to expand.
